The sessions at the international conference were --- Water quality in hemodialysis - Correlation between high-quality water and affordable care; Dialyzer - Effective selection to better patients' outcome for affordable care; and the world knowledge and the recent trend of dialysis: Real-world experience from Singapore, Europe, and Japan.
The conference disclosed that only 40 percent of the infected patients with kidney disease have been receiving dialysis services across the country. As a result, a large number of patients are dying without treatment.
